Hope Threatens Darkness

Hope Threatens Darkness is a non-profit seeking to reach people struggling with depression and suicide through messaging and resources. When they began in 2015 as "Hope for the Broken," I assisted in the design of their logo, and in 2020, they approached me to help them rebrand around a slight name change. Through this name change, we crafted a brand that is focused and bold, reflecting the organization's heart to bring a bright light of hope into dark places.
